dooced
Fired for what one writes in a personal blog. The term comes from the name of a website (www.dooce.com) kept by Heather Armstrong, who was fired after she wrote about annoying habits of her coworkers and managers and what she was actually doing when she was supposed to be working at home, among other things.
